Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1015 AM EDT Saturday, September 20, 2014 

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A cold front will enter the northwest Ohio Valley later today and move
through the rest of the basin tonight and Sunday. Scattered showers and
thunderstorms will accompany the frontal passage.  Heaviest rainfall
amounts, on average, will be across the northern basin near the Great Lakes. 
Dominant high pressure will build into the area Monday, and is expected to
provide dry and pleasant weather all week. 

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential will be low for at least the next week. 

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY'S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers fell in the New River basin of western VA. Amounts were generally
less than a half inch.  Otherwise, the entire Ohio Valley was rain-free.  

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY'S RIVER FORECASTS...
Much of the basin will see some rain from the upcoming cold frontal passage.
The northern tier will see amounts between 0.25" to around 1.00" while the
middle and southern basin receives anywhere from a few hundredths up to
0.25". 

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.
